Anything that can be printed can be crafted by hand. Well, don’t take our word for it since we did not think that through. But, the point is, before high-tech printers were invented and after people scattered all over the place making word-of-mouth improbable and impractical, people found ways to send messages and announcements via written stuff. Since weddings are rather special, and sending wedding announcements mean a lot to both the sender and the invited, hand-crafted announcements are perhaps the most personal and intimate you can get. We’re not saying that the bride and the groom sit down on a table and do the hand-crafting. They have enough to do and worry about in preparation for a wedding. But, there are service providers that offer hand-crafted wedding announcements. If you want some, better start scouting for them now.

No, those photos were not Instagrammed. The couple dressed up in vintage clothes, used a vintage camera, opted for vintage fonts, and came up with a customized wedding announcement that soon became the talk of the town. You can opt for full customized services if you are prefer to stand out from the rest of the invites that the people you are sending out will receive.

2. 3-D Save the Dates

No, this is not a 3D movie announcement. We’re not saying you can’t make one. But this idea pertains more specifically to save-the-dates that are presented beyong the two dimensions of pieces of paper of varying thickness. A message in a bottle may not be an original idea but it more tangible and definitely more romantic. If you place the bottle on a boxful of sand, then nothing could be more three-dimensional.

Here’s one final advice. When you send a wedding announcement, it is customary to do to around seven months before the big day. It’s not much different in movies. They post and distribute movie posters many months before the opening day. You’re lucky if you have a clear relation to a popular movie (plus the necessary costumes for the photo shoot). If you don’t, there are nine other options to choose from. But, wouldn’t it be great to have your wedding announced like this?
